All of you have more or less said the same thing, and the way I've promoted in the past - you meet certain criteria and are asked/told to promote. I guess I'm not going crazy.

I'd quote some posts by others regarding promotion, but the context wouldn't be accurate in a simple quote, and I don't feel like digging through threads to find them.

I was just wondering how common it is to be able to test when the student feels they're ready rather than when the instructor feels they're ready. it seems like some places have testing on certain dates, and anyone who wants to can try. Just seems odd to me to not be invited, but test anyway; kind of like an open testing policy.

To the bold type above...

If this happens, imho, there's no use in having an instructor as well as a governing body!!
